    Yes it absolutely does.

    It is both a set of planned experiences that you decide to go through before you come into life and it is a reflection of what your are putting out there. Have you ever wondered why you got just the right bit of information about anything at exactly the right moment. That...

    I believe everything happens

    for a reason. People change so you can learn how to let go. Things go wrong, so that you can appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies, so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

    Either because of a divine intervention

    or your own strong,decisive,& unbreakable free will.and on the other hand,doing an injustice to yourself,you just allow it to happen.

    Whether you believe in fate

    or destiny, I believe that they happen for a reason and we all are born to live up to something so that we can teach one another. Our lives we cannot predict, and that's the amazing thing of life's surprises. I just wish that things would be amazing always but that can't always...

    Experiences happen because of the choices

    and decisions we have made. For instances, each time I did something bad, I got in trouble with the law. Now, I do only good things and help people, and in turn good things continue to happen and people go out of their way to help me - when they see it is needed.

    Okay let me see if I can get this right.

    I know it seems hard to believe but everything truly does happen for reason. I myself can attest to this, things really do happen for reason. There is a divine order to things a path that almost seems you can't get off of. We fool ourselves into thinking that we have made our...

    Everything happens for a Reason

    but the thing is, people rather not Reason why things happen. There is always a cause and effect to any situation and what I've learned 22 yrs on this earth is that you can't blame others fully for your position in life, but prepare a game plan to make it better. I cry hard...

    It's not a cliche. I believe God is working

    Life is for learning lessons

    Time is the greatest healer,

    it pushes you to comply because the temptation to resist or react in the presents is so real and forceful but if you let TIME have it's way solutions come your way,questions are answered and soon you will see why time is your best friend.

    I think that everything bad

    that happens or has happened to me has a cause. For every choice I make there's always going to be a consequence. Even when I think I've chosen wisely or made a a great choice. Things don't happen out of random to people. Things are intended or are an effect of a cause. ~ A/

    Personally I think it's an easy way to explain

    stuff that we don't know answers for. Oh why did this happen? Oh some reason. I think a better way to explain is that **** happens. For no reason a lot of times.
